Wokingham Community Safety Partnership (CSP) wants to hear your views on crime and disorder issues within Wokingham borough. The partnership is looking at the next three years and wants to hear what you think it should be concentrating its efforts on.
The partnership, which includes Wokingham Borough Council, Thames Valley Police, Berkshire Fire and Rescue, Berkshire West Clinical Commissioning Group and Berkshire Healthcare Trust, is setting its new priorities for 2021-24 and is asking all local residents and stakeholders what they would like to see as the focus of their work.
The partnership has analysed local data and information to create a draft set of priorities and themes. This is now your opportunity to shape the local strategy on crime and disorder issues.
Cllr Parry Batth, executive member for environment and leisure, said: “Wokingham borough is a very safe place to live, work and visit. It’s one of the many reasons we are such a popular place to live. The Community Safety Partnership are working together to ensure it stays safe.
“This is a great opportunity for our residents to tell us what they think we need to do to keep Wokingham borough as safe as possible. We all deserve to live in safe and strong communities. I urge all residents to spend a few minutes taking this survey to tell us if we are on the right track with our priorities and aims for the Wokingham Community Safety Partnership.”
Cllr Charles Margetts, executive member for health, wellbeing and adult services, added: “As we all know, feeling safe in our communities is an important part in our overall health and wellbeing. The Community Safety Partnership is one of our tools to keep our communities safe and strong. Take the survey now to help shape the partnership’s priorities for the next three years.”
The partnership will use the survey responses to shape its priorities for the next three years as well as the work it does on the ground.
The survey is available on the council’s website www.wokingham.gov.uk/consultations. It will take approximately 10 minutes and will be used to help the partnership build safe and stronger communities in Wokingham Borough.
